Program Summary

This course is also open to visiting students. Students interested in interning in Washington D.C. this summer can enroll in an accompanying 4 credit summer internship course. Weekly classroom discussion informs experiential learning as students intern at one of the many government agencies, international organizations, NGOs, museums, and media companies that call Washington, D.C. home.

Students live in NYU provided housing which is shared by a community of graduate and undergraduate students, fellows, and researchers involved in a broad range of academic disciplines including global public health, politics, international relations, and policy analysis. Please note: Students are responsible for securing their own internships and should make an appointment with a Wasserman Center career coach for guidance and résumé and cover letter review.

Internship Resources and Support

As is the case during the academic year, course participants are responsible for independently securing their summer internships before the beginning of the summer term. Please see resources below to assist in finding an internship.

NYU students should first make an appointment with a Wasserman Career Coach via Handshake, and must submit cover letters and résumés for review by the Wasserman Center for Career Services before applying to internship opportunities. Students can also email if they are unable to find an appointment time that works with their schedules. Visiting students are also highly encouraged to submit all internship application material for review to their home institution's career service office before submission to D.C. postings.

Housing Availability Summer 2022
